Thales has contributed to SATCOM uplinks for nearly 35 years, spanning both civil and military applications.
Over the years Thales has built up unrivaled expertise in TWT technology for SATCOM uplinks by leveraging our long experience in developing and building TWTs for space applications. Indeed, our innovative technologies have driven decisive improvements in efficiency and thermal performance, enabling us to increase transmission power and optimize particularly the SATCOM ground segment architecture.
Thales TWTs for SATCOM uplinks cover the frequency range from 5.85 to 45.5 GHz (C, X, Ku, DBS, Ka and Q bands) from 175 W to 2.5 kW output power. "Intelligent systems start with Thales": Earth station, mobile or transportable terminals, for analog/digital TV, voice, or data transmissions, the integration of Thales components enhances the performance of your SATCOM systems.
Our TWTs are designed to optimise output power and bandwidth, while also reducing integration and operating costs for the transmitter in Satcom ground segment systems.
